Actually I found I might have a use for it, depends on if I get a pair of FG-30's or not, if not then I will get rid of it. Something tells me the FG-30's will fly my bomber well.

DUDE!!! I really shouldn't read these at work, now people are giving me that "look" as I sit here trying to smother my laughter.

I am building an 1/8th scale B-25. I know the FG-36 will work perfectly, but, try to find them.

This may be a little bit related to past topics in this crazy forum- has anyone found a way to add color to APC props? I heard someone talk about dying props a long time ago.

(I've seen an APC with some red added to it, if you know what I mean)

Crazy forum? Have you heard something? ! We're absolutely not crazy we might have a couple of guys in their cups or smoking strange cigarettes but its strictly for medicinal purposes!

On adding color to a prop are what kind of prop are we talking about composite props, large Carbon Fiber props,you get the idea? Throw us a bone here. I assume you are wanting to do something beside painting the tips?

So I started my B-25 last night, get the spar glued, yeah me. I spent at least an hour or more reviewing the plans and the parts and found out that it calls for .90 to 1.08 power, then realized thats 2 stroke power, from 1990. What would that be in 4 stroke gas or glow? I have a 91 OS 2 stroke, but I hate 2 stroke. It is a rather large hunk of metal too, so at least I have something to gauge with for size.

I keep thinking about what to use for the Rascal 168 when I get it, use the DA 100 on it or something else, but until I actually have it on my bench and see what the overall size is of the nose, I can't say if it will work or not. SO, I am thinking if it doesn't work, I may see if I can trade the CARF Extra 300L with the electronics and DA100 for three motors that I can use, two for the B-25 and one for the Rascal, but wil need to wait and see.

So did some searching, I think based on a 50% increase in displacement would give the equivalent 4 stroke size. Based on 1.08 from the plans, a pair of FG-36 would be ideal, but since those are discontinued, looks like I have to go with either the FG-30 or the FG-40 for the B-25. I really would like to go 4 stroke so have not even considered looking at 2 strokes, but if I do, it would have to be a DLE 35RA minimum.

yeah. Having the same problem with the 168. As much as i would like to put a 4 stroke in i may have to go the cheap route and get a DLE.

Better off painting them barry apc's are that good..or you could boil up a new grey or brown graupner and add some food dye,but don't eat it,they smell and taste real bad

Pope it's been a crazy 48hrs since i heard on the radio that donald duck has hit the lead..so i'm burying all my saito's to protect them.The handbrake has been bum up and head down all day with a shovel and wheelbarrow digging a swimming pool size hole in the back yard,by god she's a good woman

I stumbled across a used Saito .56 yesterday, it will be here in a few days, I will do one of my little reports with an OS-f and a Xoar 12x6 on Wildcat 10% full synthetic fuel. Tower is sold out of Fox Miracle's so OS-f it is. See that Pete, an OS-f, I'm broadening my horizons.
